Closing of the ice road in Hay River

This is the road from the other side. We took this on March 22, 2008.
I couldn't believe my luck with these pictures. Thanks to Jen and Rob I can say I learned a new setting on the camera today to get these pictures the way I wanted them. As soon as I parked the truck the Jeep started across the road. I think this is my neighbour, but I'll find out tonight when all the vehicles are home. Maybe I should send one of them to the Jeep website! Although this looks completly thawed I'm assured there is still ice underneath it, and the Jeep proves it. No thanks, you wouldn't catch me on it!

Isn't it incredible how fast it happens - once it starts! In Inuvik we used to say that you could miss spring if you happened to be gone the right week...
